All friends of the Coalition to Abolish Death By Incarceration, Holobiont Laboratory, Straight Ahead, and more are welcome to join us on Saturday May 14 from 2-5 pm at our new patio and garden space, ABOLITION PLAZA (at 4201 Powelton Street)!
- Food and drinks
- Screen printing station with Erik Ruin
- Banner making
- Sign making (supplies provided!)
- Demos about the garden and patio space including an overview of our rainwater and solar systems
- Gardening supplies to get the garden beds started

We hope you will join us to bring the warmth of loving community to our outdoor space, and to help us prepare art for the upcoming CADBI rally in Harrisburg on May 25th. We’ll have multiple participatory activity stations set up, aimed at people of all ages. Kids and loved ones are most welcome.
We look forward to seeing you all there. Swing through for half an hour or stay and hang out for the whole afternoon!
